The biggest game of the season for the Lyman Hall/H-K/Coginchaug boys hockey team is always against their rival, Sheehan. With a huge turnout in the student section, the Trojans took the ice with confidence, defeating the 7-0 Titans in overtime on Jan. 13. 

In the beginning of first period, the explosive offensive play was too much for the Trojans, which gave Sheehan two quick goals. After a timeout by the Trojans, they quickly adjusted and answered back with a goal to end the period 2-1.

Halfway through the second period, the Trojans scored another goal to tie the game 2-2. With outstanding saves by both goalies, they went into the third period still tied. By the end of the third period, neither team could score a goal because both teams played very tough defense and were extremely physical.

Captain Josh Martinez said, “Going into overtime, everyone was hyped up and ready to win another game.”

Junior Matt Petit scored the game-winning goal for the Trojans and ended Sheehan’s undefeated season. The Trojans hope to continue their undefeated streak against D3 teams and are excited for the rest of the season.
